By adding nandaimo to your Favorites. A book piece, this gate frame bag, was first designed in 1980. A similar bag is prominently displayed on page 66 of "The Artful Handbag" by Enid Nemy. Classic neutral beige karung snakeskin. The top frame is the classic Leiber gate frame.From the frame flow small fine pleats and gathers. Flip-lock clasp closure with large round hand polished tiger eye and jade cabochon. Pleating and gathering of the karung skin, as in this bag, is a major Leiber innovation. Normally, skin bags have the skins presented as flat and straight materials. A soft, round and mellowed feeling is achieved in this bag by gently hand-pleating the skins.
Other designers will machine-pleat skins making them bunch and hard. The shirring was done by hand in this Leiber bag, resulting in soft leather and in concert with the shape pf the frame.
